Becoming part of God’s pure and spotless Bride doesn’t just automatically happen.
Have you ever considered the parable in Matthew 25 about the ten virgins? Virgins are believers via the Blood of the Lamb through the reception of the gospel of salvation. The gospel of the kingdom of heaven tells us that there were five wise virgins and five foolish ones who did not accompany the Heavenly Bridegroom into His marriage. While the foolish virgins had the door shut to them, the wise virgins went in because they had made themselves ready (Matt 25:10-12).
How did these blood-bought Wise Ones make themselves ready? Rev 19:7-8 tells us that the Lamb’s wife, the Bride (Rev 21:7) makes herself ready via righteousness.
The root meaning behind the Hebrew word for “righteousness” speaks that it’s a State of Being. To be or not to be really is the right question. The Messiah’s Bride will resonate at the same frequency as her Heavenly Bridegroom. Those things in our lives that are not plumb with God’s measuring line of righteousness (according to His Word) will cause us to resonate at a lower frequency than a pure & spotless one.
After several months of studying the concept of “righteousness” in the Bible, I concluded that the topic was so huge that it’s appears to be almost endless AND the bottom line for the Bride Company being formed here on earth is that James 2:21-23 shows us that “completed faith” or “perfect faith” is reckoned by God as righteous. It’s where a believer has matured into a full age son in a particular area of their lives where they have become an actual manifestation of the Living Word. It’s a place where these people’s actions line up with their words as well as with God’s Eternal Word.
Twice Scripture declares to end-time believers how to persevere: “they that keep the commandment of God, AND the faith of Yeshua – Jesus” (Rev 14:12). In fact, Rev 12:17 shows us that the children of the woman who appears in the sky crowned with the government of God (12 stars) and clothed with the sun (His Spirit) with the moon (her soul) under her feet is a picture of the Bride of Christ and her children that are made in the same image are those who “keep the commandments of God, AND have the testimony of Jesus Christ.” BTW – When we begin to see and enter God’s Kingdom (John 3:3,5), we have faith in Jesus; but when we begin to inherit the kingdom (1 Cor 6:9-10; Gal 5: 19-21), we will have the faith of Jesus, or in other words have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
What commandments are Rev 12:17 & Rev 14:12 talking about? That’s a huge discussion in and of itself, but please allow me to point out the actual commandments given to all believers at the Jerusalem Council in Acts 15. I call them “The Essential Commandments for all Believers, because Acts 15:28 points out that fact.
The Essential Commandments for All Believers are listed three times in Scripture. They are so important that they were mentioned twice when the founding church fathers discussed what the nations (Gentiles) needed to do to become part of God’s Household – Acts 15:19-20; Acts 15:28-29; Acts 21:25. Please don’t make light of these instructions, because in reality they are abstinence requirements that preserve the sanctity of holy matrimony for the Bride of Christ. These holiness requirements demonstrate a believer’s rejection of idolatry (wrongly focused worship) that still applies to us today. We just somehow lost track of these crucial commandments that are indispensable to making His Bride ready.
The restoration of this age-old foundation of The Essential Commandments for All Believers will require diligence, humility and teachability. Once the spirit of understanding comes, faithful friends will be required to come into agreement with the Way & the Truth & the Life and His Word by righteously aligning ones own words and deeds.
In order for me to not go on and on in this article, I’ve included a link to my blog that gives you the entire chapter about “Age-Old Foundations” from my book: http://santatizing.wordpress.com/2013/07/16/age-old-foundation/. Although the Holy Spirit and I designed each chapter so they can stand alone, the three preceding chapters will give you a more complete understanding because each chapter is built upon the next. The book culminates with showing you a reflection of Christ’s Bride (Rev 21:9). Those interested in more fully understanding this missing link for most Christians that will make themselves bridal ready should order the book: http://www.amazon.com/SANTA-TIZING-Whats-wrong-Christmasclean/dp/1607911159/. Please know that the sale of this book is not important, but the message is vital and pivotal for all bridal hearts. Also, know that this book incorporates 10 years of full-time research that has endeavored to be laser sharp in both its historical and Scriptural accuracy due to it being written as ordered by our Beloved. BTW – A Biblical scholar in Old Testaments Studies and Semitic Languages went through this book with a fine-tooth comb.
Please share this crucial message with your friends and family.
P.S. My testimony might fill in some gaps for you: http://santatizing.wordpress.com/2012/11/28/my-last-christmas/. I pray that Yeshua will personally & gloriously visit you, as He did for me.
